Melanie Mills: Hymn to the Sun 

Melanie Mills’ colourful still-life paintings are perfectly imperfect. The perspective is often a touch off and the technique sometimes comes across childlike, the naivety reminiscent of greats such as Frida Kahlo. The oil paintings in Hymn to the Sun are filled with flowers, from purple magnolias to red rhododendrons. 221 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby
